2014 NFL Helmet Schedule

Last week I noticed the start of the 2014 college football season is only two months away, which means the 2014 NFL season is not far behind (and actually preseason games start in less than a month). I’ve updated the 2014 schedule spreadsheet that includes all NFL helmets from every team. It’s a fun way to look at your favorite team’s NFL schedules 2014.

Even though basing a team's supposed “ease of schedule” on the previous year's record is a faulty premise, it's still fun to do and happens all the time. For instance,  the Indianapolis Colts have the easiest schedule based on 2013 winning percentages. Don’t be surprised if the Steelers are back on top of the AFC North this year due to what should be an easier schedule than last year. Statistically, the Raiders have the toughest schedule in the NFL this year, based on 2013 records.

Download the helmet schedule using the link below and let me know what you think about your team’s chances this year:

Yes, it takes quite a long time to assemble all the NFL helmet logos each and every season but its a fun way to look at the schedule and all NFL helmets at the same time. The NFL doesn't see as much change year to year as college football does but in the near future it looks like we could have a team in Toronto, LA, and London, as well as a new logo in Washington.

NCAA 2014 College Football Helmet Schedule

It's hard to believe but at the time of writing this post at the beginning of July the college football season kicks off in less than two months! Ohio State fans like myself can finally move on after those two devastating losses to end the season. This college football helmet schedule spreadsheet is not a lot of fun to update because there are so many helmets to move around and to make things more difficult the teams in the college football conferences are never the same, like with the introduction of Rutgers and Maryland to the Big Ten for example.

This 2014 college football helmet schedule in Excel includes every team from all ten conferences plus independents. Every game is listed as either home, away, or neutral site (denotated at the bottom of each sheet).  A college football helmet schedule spreadsheet may be available on other websites but, to my knowlegde, this is the only downloadable Excel version and unlike some of the others is 100% FREE! Download it today using the link below:

In the future I think I will look for a way to make the spreadsheet easier to update and more maintainable. At least maybe figure out how to make the football helmets automatically populate. Maybe there is also a way to import the schedules from ESPN's website. Any ideas how to make the yearly update go quicker?
